Tobias Gilsenan is a mixed media artist based in Rangiora.

Thematically he looks at the enduring frustrations of humankind as expressed through politics, ecological issues, conspiracy theories, myth and modern communication. These ideas are often juxtaposed to make a new visual language.

A printmaker who paints, his work straddles the fields of drawing, painting and carving. He often uses recycled building materials to underpin the themes of his work.

Recent exhibitions include; 'Mammon Influence' Feb 2016, 'Outerzone' July 2017, 'Conspiro' Feb 2020 at Chamber Gallery, Rangiora and 'Iti Rozkosz' Nov 2018 at Next Gallery
